Simple steakhouse, no wow factor dishes and significantly over priced. Felt we over paid for the meal and service received.

Providing the highest level of restoration is our number one priority and we sincerely apologize for falling short of meeting your expectations with the service and the quality vs prices.
Wonderful restaurant! We visited 3x during our stay. Luis, our server, was very attentive and knowledgeable of the wine selection. Diego the chef even invited us to the kitchen while he cooked our meal. We loved the food (ordered the sabanero bbq multiple times!). All...was well executed, delicious, and handled with great service!!More
Was here 3 nights ago and had some Chilean cab. Came back tonight asked for a class and I can say had to be there same bottle as 3 nights ago. Flat and no taste. So I got the catch of the DAY. Came with...two small fillets. One was horrid fishy the other was good. Let’s me know NOT caught today. At least one of them.More

We just had a fabulous dinner at the JW Marriott Guanacaste's Sabanero Steakhouse and highly recommend it for a great meal, fantastic service and ambiance. This is definitely worth a visit!
A special thank you to our waiter Luis Ruiz, who provided exemplary service. He...provided us great recommendations (try the Costa Rican filet mignon) from start to finish. Both he and Javier, the head waiter, made our dining experience memorable. We also want to thank Chef Josue, who prepared such a delicious meal - he took special care with my gluten free diet, without sparing any of the flavor. And for making me a gluten free cake to celebrate my birthday - so beautiful.
We want to thank the entire staff at Sabanero Steakhouse - from hostess Dalila, Luis, Javier, Chef Josue, Santiago, Tony and Chester who gave us a memorable dinner and birthday.
I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a great dinning experience. We'll certainly be back.
Muchas gracias por excelente servicio y comida!More
You should definitely do the mixology class at the rum bar (a little spin off bar from Sabenero). Gustavo teaches it he is amazing super friendly makes good drinks and makes it an interactive experience for everyone who comes. He makes a few cocktails and...basically gives everyone a chance to get behind the bar and make drinks for everyone it’s really nice and fun.More
Not kidding, my dinner here is in the top 5 meals I've had ever - and this is a tough top 5 list to make! Chipotle Margarita was the icing on the cake.More
